At this point it’s a pretty safe bet to say that Apple will never add microSD card support to its iPhone lineup. Okay fine, “never” is a difficult call to make. Suffice it to say that we’re not going to see Apple release an iPhone with expandable memory anytime soon. The company makes way too much money getting people to shell out extra cash for higher capacity devices, and expandable storage like microSD card support would strand that gravy train at the station.
Of course, there is a way to add microSD card support to any iPhone or iPad, and it takes about 1 second to do. Best of all, the Lexar microSD To Lightning Reader you need to make it happen is on sale right now on Amazon for $10 off.
We first told you about this awesome little adapter way back in May of this year after it was first released. In a nutshell, it’s a simple microSD card reader with a Lightning connector that you can attach to any iPhone or iPad. Then you install a free companion app from Lexar and you can save your photos, videos and more on any microSD card you want.
Here are some more key details:
- Easily offload and transfer content to or from your iPhone or iPad with a micro SD card
- Great for anyone capturing photos or video with a sports camcorder or aerial camera
- Small, portable design with a Lightning connector
- Works with use of free file management app (App Store)
- Automatically and securely sync files
The Lexar microSD To Lightning Reader normally costs $29.95, but Amazon is selling it for $19.99 from now through the end of the day on August 20. Trust us, this is a deal you won’t want to miss.
